A truly grand property with spacious rooms and tasteful decoration. The garage is a real bonus too. Great location with lovely views. Short walks to basic shops and good cafes. The ferry to Teignmouth (less than 5 minutes and only a short walk from The Mintons) is quite a novelty, saves a car journey and the hassle of finding somewhere to park.

A beautiful, highly decorated. Right on the river-front, close to the bridge connecting Shaldon with Teignmouth. The house is of a very high standard: bedding, towels, etc., were of high quality. Kitchen equipped with everything you could possibly need. The garage is spacious enough for our two, largish cars. Televisions in each bedroom as well as the lounge. Dining table big enough for a large group. The 'Peacock' wall covering, in the dining room, is phenomenal. The house is close to all necessary amenities. The 'Ness' is only a short, 15 min walk (slightly uphill), with the small zoo (worth a visit), just a bit further on. Lovely pubs and coffee shops. The ferry boat goes from the beach across the estuary to Teignmouth, regularly. You just need to check the last sailing times. I will mention that the bathrooms could do with a glass shelf above the sinks (for toiletries) and somewhere to hang damp bath towels, hooks on the doors, toilet roll holders, as all these things would save guests from having to put everything on the floor! All in all though, a beautiful place to stay.

Fantastic week at Mintons the views and the house are both stunning. Can’t fault this property privilege to stay here. The village location is perfect with many pubs and shops on the doorstep.

We had a lovely time thank you. House was simply stunning and at a perfect location. Would love to come back.

Mintons is a really lovely house that delighted all our family. It is so comfortable with the best beds and pillows, beautiful sofa towels and comfortable chairs. The games room was wonderful for the teenagers. The interesting decoration, the cleanliness and fully equipped kitchen was so much appreciated. Good parking for two smallish cars. Views over the water were a joy and a very short walk to an excellent pub a bonus.

Fantastic location, lovely little village with some nice pubs. House is great, really felt at home

We had a wonderful weeks stay at Mintons. The location was fabulous. Right next to a beach, where we watched wonderful sunrises and sunsets. The village of Shaldon, has lovely restaurants and shops. I would Recommend booking restaurants ahead, they are very popular. We also did paddle boarding and kayaking from the main beach at Shaldon.
The house was fully equipped and catered for all our needs. A nice touch of coffee, milk and wine left for us on arrival.
I Would definitely recommend and we hope to be back again soon.

Spacious property Games room Comfy beds TVs with Sky etc Piping hot water in showers Tasteful decor Fabulous views Close to local amenities with great little shops - bakery, butcher, coffee shop, pubs, grocery store and Post Office. Not enough bedroom storage - bedside tables etc Welcome pack - we have had some fabulous things left to welcome us to our holiday properties in the past. At Mintons it was wine and a bag of coffee - nice but quite basic, a pint of milk and some butter could be provided at least…thoughtful ideas make a BIG difference. The booking in and out times have been changed to ensure deep cleaning/airing (written on your website), due to COVID. The house had not been cleaned/checked to the standard we expect and had paid for! For example some furniture was incredibly dusty, we found things underneath furniture that had been left by previous occupants - a dirty sock, cigarette filters, half used hair product. There was part eaten ice cream in freezer, another sock in washing machine, lots of built up debris at back of sofa, floors not fully clean so impossible to walk around without dirtying socks, plates and cups in cupboard not clean, compost caddy very unhygienic as no bags supplied, hand soap in en-suite watered down!
Surely there is a list of EVERYTHING that needs completing and checking on changeover day?? Hot tap in en-suite faulty. Downstairs toilet didn’t flush properly. Odd mixture of kitchen utensils - electric whisk but no cheese grater?? Chest of drawers in bedroom 1 - handles missing, drawers very rickety.

Thanks so much for sharing your feedback, and it's great to see that there were so many elements of the house that worked well for you. We've passed on your suggestions to make things even better to the owners, we're sure they'll appreciate your ideas. Whilst we weren't aware during your stay that you felt some areas needed further attention, had you let us know we'd have been very happy to arrange for the housekeeper to return. These items will be checked thoroughly at the next changeover opportunity. Tanya, Customer Support

This is a lovely home from home, great view and convenient for all village access. Garage parking was very useful, but a bit tight for larger vehicles.

Outstanding cottage in a great location. Everything in walking distance, fantastic views and a beautifully appointed property. For a place with all wooden floors the sound proofing was excellent. The private courtyard entrance to the double garage was ideal. We had two medium sized SUVs which fitted in the garage without an issue. The games/utility room on the ground floor is perfect for throwing your beach stuff in and so prevents bringing any sand etc. into the house. We had a lot of fun with the pool table while watching the Euros. Overall, this is a great cottage with four great sized bedrooms and a very spacious downstairs living area. We would rebook this property in a heartbeat.

Amazing place and beautiful location. Would love to live there as it is so peaceful and relaxing and nearby facilities were also easily accessible. Locals very friendly and a pleasure to have stayed there. Top marks.

We loved our stay at the Mintons, it is probably the best home in the very best location in Shaldon, which is a beautiful little English coastal village. The views are fantastic and there are some great pubs between 1 to 5 minutes walk away. I would highly recommend this place.

I couldn't believe the view from this house was just as in the pictures, and in fact everything was just as in the pictures. It was very large and roomy, but not cold. It was extremely well furnished and equipped. The Wifi was excellent and we were able to watch Netflix so the kids were happy. We did lots of walks straight from the house, and had dinner at the London Inn (excellent) and Clipper Cafe which was also good. The fish and chips from the local chippy were also excellent, but beware that eateries are not open on all nights.

Good or bad, we publish all the reviews left by the guests who have stayed in this cottage, with the few exceptions stated in our Review Guidelines.
